Select more than one answer.A) the speed of light is fasterB) the energy is lowerC) the wavelength is longerD) the speed of light is slowerE) the wavelength is shorterF) the energy is higher

FREE Expert Solution

In a vacuum, the speed of light is a constant independent of frequency.

The energy of electromagnetic waves:

E=hf=hcλ

The energy of electromagnetic radiation is directly proportional to the frequency.
